Review of This Book
Raw Food Celebrations Party Menus for Every Occasion by Nomi Shannon and Sheryl Duruz is a beautiful book with versatile meal plans and lots of great tips for preparation. The heart of the book are the 6 menus, the Italian Menu, the Thai Menu, the Brunch Menu, the Cocktail Hour Menu, the Tradtional Menu and the Light Luncheon Buffet. Each one has more recipes than you really need so you have some flexibility in what you are serving. Each menu has its own specific tips for preparation, plus a schedule of when to shop, when to do advance preparation and what you need to do shortly before serving. The color plates are remarkably lovely and the results are genuine multi-course gourmet meals.
Nomi Shannon has broad training in numerous alternative health modalities, and is a live food lifestyle coach and certified Hippocrates Health Educator.
Sheryl Duruz and her husband Piers founded Raw Pleasure–Australia’s largest raw food community and supplier of raw food equipment, education, and inspiration–and The Living Adventure, the natural lifestyle enhancement experiment seen around the world.
